First Red Dwarf Marathon

This past weekend, we attended the annual Red Dwarf marathon held by my college friend and fellow Penn State Monty Python Society member, The ER Doctor, and her husband. This was the fourteenth year of the event and about the fifth or sixth time that The Gryphon and I have attended. It was our first time bringing our Kung Fu Panda (although I was pregnant at the event last year). Even though he's still recovering from a cold, I discussed it with the ER Doctor and she said that, as long as he seemed comfortable, we should come and bring him.



Fascinated by Feet
Our Kung Fu Panda is fascinated by people's feet,
especially the fuzzy blue socks that look like Cookie Monster.



Hello, Cheekers
KFP enjoys some floor time with a new friend,
who gave him the nickname Cheekers because of his chubby cheeks.



KFP and the Host
KFP with the host of the party, The ER Doctor's Husband.



Spoon Fun
KFP experiments with his spoon while
waiting for a mixture of applesauce and rice cereal.



Which End?
He doesn't yet realize which end of the spoon to put in his mouth.



KFP Teething
KFP stands holding onto his daddy's leg and chews on a favorite toy.



Watching Plan 9
We watch "Plan 9 from Outer Space" with the Riff Tracks commentary.



Star Wars Cookies
Before we arrived, some guests helped make Star Wars shortbreak cookies,
featuring Yoda, Darth Vader, some ships and other characters.



Kitchen Chatting
Guests chatting in the kitchen on Sunday morning.



KFP with the Hostess
KFP enjoyed meeting The ER Doctor in person.
He's wearing his Penn State footie pajamas.



KFP and The Gryphon
KFP with his daddy.



Truck Time
KFP enjoys playing with a truck.



KFP, a.k.a. Cheekers
Answering to a new nickname, Cheekers,
KFP enjoys hanging with a new friend.



Future Drummer
The ER Doctor's oldest son plays the bands during Beatles Rock Band.



Young Singer
The ER Doctor's youngest son was
on the microphone during Beatles Rock Band.



Beatles Rock Band
A practice session for a future family band? No, just playing Beatles Rock Band.



First D-20
KFP plays with a plush 20-sided die. Future gamer?



Duck Butt
KFP shows off the duck on his behind which had people
giggling on Sunday morning and singing about duck butts.



Ready for His Nap
KFP was starting to get a little tired by late Sunday morning
but still had energy to greet one more new friend.



Moral:
KFP likes meeting new people, even when he's a little under the weather.

One of the reasons I enjoy wearing socks with designs is to entertain small people like KFP.

Michael and I are in the midst of re-viewing Season 8 of RED DWARF.

He is fascinated by feet! We only own up until about season 6, but our friends have more.

The picture of KFP and the gryphon is great simply because of the expression on KFP's face. That "dad, must you kiss me in public" look. Grin!

And the cookies looked so yunnn!

It seems that every couple of years they come back and make another series or another special. There's still a good deal of Red Dwarf I haven't seen. Maybe I'll have to start renting it from Blockbuster online.

I read the novel and have seen some of the original series. That is about it.

Did the novel come before or after the series? This is the first I've heard of it.

I think it was after. It was in the PSSFS library.The novel ,Better Than Life,was written in 1990.

Well, according to IMDb, the first series began in 1988.
